Run For Your Wife review

Ray Cooney’s execrable film adaptation of his long-running stage comedy about a London cabbie with two unsuspecting wives doesn’t even count as a missed opportunity.

Vanity project is nearer the mark, thanks in part to the gallery of “theatre chums” the veteran farceur has press-ganged into contributing cameos.

Cliff Richard as a busker, Judi Dench as a bag lady, Lionel Blair as a gay neighbour (not to mention Russ Abbot, Richard Briers, Ray Winstone, Sylvia Syms and Rolf Harris)… it’s one long, laughter-averse ordeal studded with D-listers short of panto work.

The leads are no better, Danny Dyer, Denise Van Outen and Sarah ‘Girls Aloud’ Harding giving performances that’ll make you run for the exit.
